Just wondering if anyone else had had their driving license revoked due to repeated syncope and how long the suspension lasted? I've been suspended for two and a half years (had had a year suspension several years previously for suspected epilepsy but diagnosis since is towards vasovagal syncope with vagally mediated high degree heart block) but have had no blackouts for the last 6 months so if this is still the case when I see the consultant in May I'll ask if I can reapply for my license. The guidelines from the DVLA don't seem to me to very clear for syncope, as opposed to epilepsy where they're very clear. Just wondered what everyone else's experiences were? Obviously I completely understand not being able to drive when there is a risk of blackouts but don't understand how the risk is calculated in this case.
